    Wrong. That shows you understand the mentality of Obama and the hemorrhoids who worship him.

    The British shipped off all their criminals to New York in the 18th Century. They've had a lower crime rate ever since. It has nothing to do with the availability of guns.

    What? Do you mean to tell me they haven't grown any more criminals in Great Britain now for more than 200 years? Wow! Who woulda thunk THAT! :roll eyes:

    Here's the bad news for you. The murder rate in GB during the middle of the 19th century was about 1.7 per 100,000 people. They'd started gun control measures some years before that, but the first gun licensing law was passed in the early 1870's. After that, and with subsequent laws, the murder rate dropped substantially.

    However, about 40 years ago, it began to rise again and today is about where it was before the licensing law. Partly, that can be attributed to a greatly expanded population, but more importantly for our purposes, guns are not the murder weapon of choice. Of the 125 London murders in 2010, less than 1/4 involved the use of firearms.

    In any case, comparing Great Britain to us is an apples to oranges comparison. They did not have our frontier experience and their culture is simply different from ours because of it. They've never had a propensity to kill each other individually that we have. (Organized killing, however, is a different matter.)
